Just dl this show on set-list and year, plus some positive remarks by other reviewers. To start as of Jack A Roe this is a fine aud. with a very even mix of the sounds and "warm" quality like a comfortable leather glove. As for "Jack" I have never heard such an edgy version. I agree the Miss. 1/2 is smokin', as was the Jack Straw. always can use a well played(so a verse was flubbed, big deal) TLEO. Unless some glaring glitch later in the show I would give this a 4 and recommend the download. Fingers crossed-Donna even has been "on" up to this point. Though I must say that she is a genuinely nice person with a bit of a come back with the Tricksters and some decent songs as of 2008. Hope she keeps it up so the family can keep growing and living.

Subject: Seriously guys?
This was a smokin' show at the end of an amazing Spring '77 tour...the band is tight, the sound is crisp and clean, the recording above average...all the elements for a top 20 download in my library EXCEPT the two guys standing at the mikes (I seriously hope it wasn't the tapers but I have to think it was due to proximity) yapping through the entire show!!!
Did you get to see so many shows in '77 that they just held no interest for you anymore?
Was it all about the taping and not the being in the moment at the show? If so, you screwed up the tape too!
Was 2+ hours of your own rap that much more interesting than the band on an outstanding night?
I finally had to turn it off because my frustration started to outweigh the beauty of the listen...too bad because otherwise this is a choice recording. Fortunately there are many great sets from that magical spring...onward and upward. Peace

Subject: Unquestionably one of the Best Of 1977.....!!!!
OH, YES......yes, yes, yes!! A KILLER show from start to finish, it definitely ranks in my Top 5 from 1977. Yeah, there may be lots of hotter versions of this-or-that.....but as a whole, this one is VERY hard-to-beat.

The band is COMPLETELY in-synch here, from the 1st note to the last. Whatever their cause for inspiration, thank goodness we have the tapes!!

The 1st set highlight for me is the BLISTERING "Mississippi Half Step" that drops into "El Paso" flawlessly. Jerry also adds a top-notch "Tennessee Jed". The set-closing "Scarlet Begonias" > "Fire On The Mountain" is also very, very tasty.

The 2nd set cooks all-the-way, with Bobby's numbers shining particularly brightly. The "Samson And Delilah" opener is really ass-kickin' (as are most versions from this incredible year)!!!

I downloaded this GREAT audience recording and took an hour or so to spruce it up a bit, bringing out the brightness of the high end; perhaps I'll get around to uploading it on the Archive someday.

If you've yet to hear this show, do yourself a favor and download it WON'T be disappointed...!!!!

In a year of INTENSE Grateful Dead concerts, this one is a real standout!!
